Clare Proctor, Assistant City Editor

A 19-year-old Evanston resident reported that the rear license plate of his 2011 Ford pickup truck was missing Wednesday.

The vehicle was parked at the corner of Callan Avenue and South Boulevard. The car owner noticed the plate was missing from his car at approximately 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. The man submitted an incident report in case the plate was stolen, he added.

Glew said the plate is being considered either stolen or missing, but there are currently no suspects.

Replacement security chip stolen from apartment building

A 29-year-old Evanston resident reported a package stolen from the front entryway of his apartment building Wednesday night.

The resident had ordered a replacement chip for his Protection 1/ADT security system and had received notification from FedEx that the package had been delivered to the 400 block of Custer Avenue, Glew said. The man reported that when he went to pick up his package, it had been taken.

The chip is valued at approximately $100 but is covered under warranty, Glew said. He added that the report was likely made to allow the man to claim the package as stolen and get it replaced for free, rather than to identify the individual who stole the chip.
